THE MASTER OF DISGUISE
Young Pistachio Disguisey has always been an odd boy. Ever since he was a little kid, he loved dressing up in costumes and acting a different part.
One day, his father is kidnapped by an evil mastermind, and Pistachio discovers that his family is part of a long line of special magicians whose main skill was the art of disguise. His father and grandfather were both masters, and now his grandfather informs him that if Pistachio wants to rescue his father, he must train to become a Master of Disguise.
The movie's summary sounded great, like a fun children's adventure. However, when my family and I started watching it, we found it to be dumb beyond belief. There is no describing how horrible it was. It was corny, and awkward, and so ridiculous it hurt.
Now, before I complain too much, let me say this: it did have some genuinely funny moments. I'm not above quoting one or two of the funny lines, or looking back on a funny scene or two. However, the majority of the movie was so cheesy I couldn't stand it.
The "Turtle" scene... oh, good heavens, the "Turtle" scene. Look it up on You Tube some time, see if you can find it. It's so bad, it's worth a watch.
I will say that the younger kids loved it. It was mostly anyone above the age of 8 that was just too weirded out. One thing I thought was rather inappropriate was the main character's odd goal of marrying a girl with a big rear end. It comes up more often than necessary, and is actually one of his weaknesses when fighting the bad guys (or girls, I should say).
